During Spring Festival, passenger transport volume for railways, highways and airways increases rapidly. Up to February 21, the 40-day 2017 Spring Festival travel rush was over. According to the ministry of transport,as of February 20, about 2.7 billion passengers were sent by railway, highway, waterway and civil aviation in China. Railway and highway are the main one that people choose.
From the above chart, especially the data of January and February of the highway transportation flow was the peak period of the year. And high-speed railway accounts for 60% of railway transportation.
According to 236 key transport hubs, during the Spring Festival travel rush, railway station and airport of Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing; Zhengzhou railway station, bus terminal of Xian and Guangxi got the biggest passenger flow of China. It is not surprise that Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai are the top rank.
